Has anyone read the book referred to in the subject?
The URL for the publisher's page is...
...and it says the book describes a unification of parsing techniques
for programming languages and natural languages.
"The new implementations, called recursive
ascent parsers, avoid explicit manipulation of parse stacks and
parse matrices, and are in many ways superior to conventional
implementations. They are applicable to grammars for programming
languages as well as natural languages."
I'm hoping to hear more about the book in particular and recursive
ascent parsing in general.
